How effective are screening measures at detecting breast cancer?

Breast Cancer Screening Saves Lives

The best advice that you can get about breast cancer screening is that early detection of breast cancer through mammograms, clinical exams, and self-exams is estimated to save thousands of lives every year. If cancer is present in your breast, detecting it early vastly improves the chances that you can be treated and cured with few or no lasting side effects. Mammograms do have their limitations. They do not always detect every kind of cancer. But for the most part, screening methods are considered the most valuable weapon in the battle against breast cancer. Unfortunately, this weapon is only as strong as the women who utilize it. Make sure you are one of them.
